what's in a name eh?

Last night we had dinner at salt water grill café.

The food was excellent. The kind that makes you want to make kissing sounds.

They had this thing on their menu called pan fried John Dory. For those not in the know John Dory is a fish.

Exactly my point. How are you supposed to know that? Who names their food after human beings?

Would you like freshly caught Pappu Taneja, in lemon butter sauce. Or we also have some steamed Nimmi Saxena with olives and fresh parsley.

Right. I’m waiting for that day.

Did you really eat this fish?It looks so creepy with its eyes all popped out!!! :-)

Ha ha ha ha ha! This is F.U.N.N.Y! :))

@Rambler: I think the fish got to know what it's going to be become just before dying. It's that look of eye-popping horror.

Maybe that's why they named the cute fish in Finding Nemo Dory :P

oh yes, i can think of a number of people i'd like to stick my knife into...with or without lemon butter sauce and parsley :)
on a slightly different note, kubla khan and milo'd probably go better with maple syrup and pappoo singh would be delicious with a dash of lime.
